But we are chasing well and Backing our strength. We have heard that it is a very good wicket and the score was high in the home games. Par score is around 180 and we are expecting the wicket to be better. We have some tremendous changes; Rabada and Parnell missed due to injuries, Reeza Hendrix also missed, Quinton de Kock has recovered and is back, Marco Jensen and Ngidi are coming in.”
Indian captain Rishabh Pant said at the toss, “We were looking to bowl first. The only thing we are focusing on is our process and not thinking that it is a win game. We are in the middle. Trying to increase our run rate.” Over and that’s what we are trying to achieve as a team. We are playing with the same team.”
